MOAB, Utah (AP) -- The Salt Lake City woman accused of strangling her two-year-old daughter last year pleaded guilty by reason of insanity.
Yesterday, 29-year-old Wendy Bullock was in court on charges of second-degree felony child-abuse homicide in the January 2004 death of her daughter.
The judge ordered her to return to the Utah State Hospital for evaluation to determine whether or not she's mentally ill.
The results of the evaluation will determine whether Bullock should be sent to prison or remain at the hospital for treatment.
Police say, last January, Bullock pulled alongside Interstate 70 in Grand County and asked a motorist for razor blades. The man alerted police, who found the girl dead in the car when they arrived.
